Hade made in Portugal, these premium made Appletree foil boards are produced in their 100% carbon fibre construction. You want carbon fibre in a foil board for its stiffness and strength. A stiff board will give you the best control and response from the foil. Also stiffness will make pumping the foil much more effective. With carbon fibre Appletree is able to make the board extremely strong while really light at the same time.

It all starts with the core and every board Appletree makes starts with a foam core of their very own 50K closed cell foam. This foam is formalized exclusively for Appletree; it is not used in any other board in the market.

The foam can withstand 50.000 kg per square meter, while staying very light, and most of all very flexible. Another plus of the 50K foam is that it is closed cell, meaning that the foam will not take in water, and the board will not blow out when it gets hot.

The most stress in a foil board is in the connection of the foil to the board. So this is where they put extra care and attention to make it the strongest connection available. The foil mount is CNC cut with the board for the highest precision. They only use Future's Oneshot boxes as they are the strongest in the industry. The boxes are placed in a panel of ultra high density PET honeycomb. This PET honeycomb itself is sandwiched in carbon again, meaning there is carbon fiber both inside the board and outside. The honeycomb's open structure ensures a solid connection between inside and outside, fusing everything together into a solid block.

Appletree's lamination is completely different as well. They use a vacuum technique developed in house, where they layer all the carbon fibre and reinforcements on the board dry. Then they extract all the air from the bag and inject the epoxy resin under pressure. This results in the tightest lamination possible, with the best ratio between fibre and epoxy. It also gives 100% connection to the core so the boards do not delaminate. Extra patches under the feet prevent heel denting.

Inserts in Appletree's foil range are made from blocks of high density material. These blocks are also fused to the core so they never pull out.

The shape of the Appleslice Wing is compact and fairly thick. This is to get as many liters as possible in the compact shape. This compact outline and short length is really important for wing foiling. Imagine a big board balancing on a small foil mast. This is a huge swing weight, that slows all movement down and makes quick turns impossible. For learning this can be an advantage as it is more stable, but the learning curve in wing foiling is pretty quick, so you will not enjoy a big shape for long.

The bottom of the Appleslice Wing features a 4 way “boat hull” in the front. This splits the water and makes it possible to accelerate quickly. The middle part has a 3 stage with a flatter part in the middle. This provides a quick planing surface, but it is small enough that it will not stick to the water’s surface when releasing and rising on the foil. Behind the foil box, there is an aggressive kick that further helps with release.

The deck is concave, to lock your knees in when you get going. It also gives a real secure platform to stand on. The Appleslice Wing has inserts for foot straps as standard and comes with a comfy 3mm EVA traction on the whole deck. The board is more than strong enough to do crazy airs and jumps. Which makes wing surfing so fun!
